We use shader model 2.0, so shouldn't be a problem there. It looks like you have plenty of RAM and your CPU is fine, but the passmark on that G33/G31 chipset is only a... 9.
That is by far the worst score I've seen, which makes me skeptical, unfortunately! :\

We did have someone try it on a Radeon Mobility 9600 (which has a passmark of 30) and it was playable (30+ fps) on the 1 skull graphic quality setting.

If you know you'll be upgrading your computer, you can always get the game now and see if it works (and if not, play later :)). If you do try it, there is a setting that you should change before entering a match. Go into Settings and set Graphics Quality it to 1 skull (out of max 4). This may run successfully (this setting is used on some lower end windows 8 tablets, and we haven't had anybody report the game is unplayable due to a slow machine) but I remain wary.
